Batman is coming to Waze!
The partnership with DC ends on October 31, check it out before it's gone!
Google-owned Waze has just announced a new update which this time is offered only for a limited time. Thanks to a partnership with DC, Waze allows users to configure Batman or The Riddler as the navigation voice or vehicle on both Android and iOS.
The update comes as Batman Day is celebrated next month, so users are allowed to enable the new settings by October 31. The voice of Batman for Waze navigation is powered by Kevin Conroy (from the animated series), while The Riddler is voiced by Wally Wingert (Jim Carrey sadly wasn't available).
In addition to the new voices, the Waze update also brings new moods to the app, so users can enable either Batman or The Riddler as the icon that others see on the map. And last but not least, the limited-time update includes new car icons too, which means that you can replace your typical vehicle icon with the Batmobile or Riddler’s racer in Waze.
But at the same time, Waze is also displaying a prompt for all users, asking them to “choose a side” and jump straight to the configuration screen. Pressing the “No, thanks” button, however, allows users to ignore the update and stick with their existing settings.
And now the bad news. While this is quite a cool update that many Waze users might actually enjoy, its availability is limited to English, Spanish, and Portuguese. So if you were hoping to hear Batman speaking French, that’s not going to happen for the time being.
